So basically, I was randomly chatting with Ardenn, recently in the shoutbox, and well... 'Straiter Jacketed: ...All-Mind-All-Star's Basketball Team' and 'Straiter JacketedAh god... *Facepalms* Now I want to see the rp of an All-Mind team vs. Normal People team... *Facepalms again*'. And yes, I know they linked to my profile, slacking off is my defence as for why...

Anyway, I was thinking of making it either a competition between so many teams or have two teams of people and have a sort-of picnic, so it's not just about the basketballers.

Yeah, experimental and will most like require enough people online at one point to be able to get the team's to play, let-a-lone to get others to attend. That's the downside, timezones...

Either way, if this goes through and we have a few people (enough to form two teams), I or someone else, will post the results ICly. Which allows for people to bet it on prior to the match and see who wins in a more easier method.

*Thinking of adding more...*

((No idea how to play basketball. Never seen a basketball game..... will there be dancing.

Stick with me kid and you'll be farting through silk.

Altered titles. Apologies for not answering Joe. I'm currently really busy (don't ask) and will be for a couple of days. So can someone please tell him and thanks in advance.

Son't forget to change your vote if you want, now that its all sports and not just basketball.

I'm just not a big fan of sports, so it would quickly bore me to watch any sporting event.

Actually baseball would be very easy to play with /rolls in the game.
And there is an actual field in Old Kingman.

I would join a FE baseball league, but only if people put real effort in it, i.e. team dresses, etc.


All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

He, who has cursed me, will bath in the blood I spill until he drowns and my curse is lifted.

((Ahhh, now 'baseball' I've heard of. That's the one that's a bit like Rounders isn't it... not that i know how to play either.

Neither are very interesting to me. majority of sports aren't, one British sport I do love though. 

Anyhow.. Yeah, I voted no Since it wouldnt be entertaining and I doubt it'd be easy

What I would like is Baseball where the guy runs with the bat and beat the crap out of the guards at every base, if the guy wins he keeps runing, if he loses, hes out.

Kinda like this poster I made 3-4 years ago.

Baseball with a blood sports twist... I like. But considering the tally so far, nothing but an awesome dream.

I'm not a sports fan. I will also note that while the idea is 'cute', standing around watching people roll or trying to mimic a game that we cant actually make lines or a proper field for sounds like a pain in the ass and more effort than its worth in the long run. Thats kind of why I ran the Derby for a while, since it was using things already present in the game and gave people stuff to actually watch and interact with.

Figuring otu how the fuck to do any competitive anythign withotu flagging for PVP is hard to come up with though. Fucking DMG ruinign all my plans. -_-

Seems like only a few would be interested anyway...

And who says this ought to require flagging? Its sports, not combat. Simple way to combat PvP clans during homemade blood sports, dueling. One-on-one. Though, I do want to experiment with blood sports thanks to, One-Eye...

Plus, screw me over and laugh if you want, as I started to read your comment, I devised a way to play baseball. Just need grenades, a batter, pitcher and ump. Plus, one person fully OOC, slinging their grenades out far to mimic the hitting of the ball. Whilst the dude behind the batter calling the shots, fauls and 'balls', would do rolls, depending on the number the ball would be followed as a strike, faul, ball or a hit.

But, like you said. Nothing but a *puts it in a demeaning way* "cute", idea.

Unless you get someone with a grenade launcher. They Bounce when used by that thing so they can get pretty far.

Hopefully you're just pulling my leg on that, otherwise... *Sighs very annoyed and deeply* ...Guess I'll have a future respec coming along...

*Evilly smirks* Any freelancer time, feel free to poat it up :)

As for this and Henerkin's, ideas. I'll be hosting a try-outs match for one of the (blood)sports some day, hell, if possibe (and because he's become really soft and tame >:D) I'll see if Petyr can be my first victimised-teammate, namely on the baseball idea or (if we can't get a third person to lob the grenades) one of the bloodsports for a laugh.

Frel free to contact me and say you want to be a test pilot. Hell, this idea might of burnt, but there seems to be a few that are onterested in it (at the very least).

after testing; Grenades have a 2 second explosion delay. They will bounce up to two times before they explode. They do NOT go as far as a Rocket however, it might make it to the inner bases, but not the outfield (You'd probably need a rocket launcher to represent home runs and the grenade launcher for closer ranges). The grenades will boucne off objects, not just the ground, as big as a wall, or as small as a newspaper box, or as narrow as a light post if hit dead on. I could barely see the grenades myself on a dark surface though, and I didnt have anyone around at the time to see if they could site the grenades at all.

Thanks for testing it out Ardenn. Now we just need to find out if they're see-able and we're all set for one really crooked baseball game :D

*Middle Finger*

Voted perhaps.

CJ and I used to play basketball with rolls, but it was just him and I, so it made decisions eaiser.

We talked about getting a baseball game going on the Kingman field with apocalyptic rulesets and often surmised about what post apocalyptic football would be like...thinking old school Mayan hoop ball right there.

The football should have a time bomb in it. Would make possession so much more interesting.
